"Although very good and highly up-to-date, Backports.org is a third-party repository"
As I understand it, FreeBSD ports are also 3rd party, yes? And that is why they are in flux, relative to the base system? So the "sharp contrast" doesn't seem particularly sharp, or even in contrast. If you want recent stuff from either one, you leave the core system. Except that the core in Debian is enormous and old, and the core in FreeBSD is miniscule and as old as a Fedora release (with its large core) (not that I want to endorse Fedora here).
